'll push as hard as we can. martha: mark these send, former speechwriter to president george w. bush. alcan combs -- alan colmes, host of the "alan colmes radio show". good morning. big day in america. great to have you both with us. you heard david plouffe's remarks. you worked for president george w. bush. is there common ground that needs to be sought on this issue in this country, do you think? >> i think there can be. look, i have two daughters who are the exact same age as the kids who died in newtown. there are a lot of things the republicans can support like the president announced. better gun owner and safety education and mental health support and helping develop emergency responses and the rest but when the president goes to gun control i think the public support and bipartisan support drops dramatically. there is a fox news poll shows only 22% of americans believe more gun control would have actually stopped an incident in newtown where as 71% think the criminals will get guns anyway. the 71% are right. there sim peer call evidence that shows it. i think it is a mistake to go af
. is that the case? karl rove, former senior advisor to president george w. bush and a fox news contributor and good morning to you, karl. i see you stayed far away from washington, d.c. today, back there in austin, texas. what do you think that number, 55%, reflects based on what we've watched over the past two months? >> well, it reflects people paying attention to what's been going on. the president has been far more confrontational after the election. in fact, excuse me, "new york times" article yesterday interviewing a bunch of his friends where one of the takeaways from his friends and aides, he would be quote, more bloody-minded about republicans. recent stories in both the post and "l.a. times" and "new york times" where his aids felt aides felt he was liberated in his section term. liberated from what? take on political opposition and focus on defeating the republicans in the fourth fourth election. most presidents say they're liberated. i'm never on the ballot again. i can work with people to bring together big purposes. the president has much smaller objective. let me beat use my power to
to be lower than his first. president george w. bush's second inaugural in 2005 drew up to 500,000 people.>> it may be sot before we get the official estimate of the crowd here, certainly not 1.8 million who were here in 2009, but estimates before the inauguration ranged from 600,000 to 800,000 but what we can report to you is that there were a lot of americans in the national mall today who were overjoyed to witness history, inauguration of any president is a remarkable moment in american history. and they were there today, many of them with their children to see these events. the president was inaugurated of course under the -- in the shadow i probably should say, the capitol dome. a fascinating thing about the dome of the capitol, this year is the 150th anniversary of the completion of the capitol dome. something that was mentioned today during the president's inauguration. here is a look at the dome as it was under construction during the civil war. now, when the civil war broke out so much cast iron was being used in building the dome and it was piled up all around the construction

: many people are saying that this president could use george w. bush on the issue of immigration because he is that as a key domestic agenda item on for his second term and he felt pretty good president bush help him on immigration with republicans? pick it'm sure he could is a question of whether he wants to play that role. there are plenty of other surrogates who could play this role, and the most important one is marco rubio, who was not only of hispanic origin, but also younger and can appeal to this whole dreamers movement, and he is right here in washington serving in congress and drafting legislation and working on a bipartisan basis. there is also a large number of democrats and republicans who, while we don't hear about it, are working behind the scenes, like lindsey graham and charles schumer, on putting some kind of legislation out there. certainly bush, he decided to step forward, could play a constructive role. it is not like he is going to let democrats just because he decided to put himself out there on the issue. it would only help in terms of bringing republicans on boar
two living presidents george h.w. bush who was just released from the hospital and is who is now recovering, and george w. bush who sends his regrets. >> so as it happens because of the illness of the elder mr. bush, there will be only democratic presidents in attendance today. very, very unusual circumstance. the headline of the hour, the news broke moments ago by bob schieffer is that the republican leadership at this moment is in the white house having coffee with the president. perhaps a hopeful sign that agreements might come with the new year. >>> here's what's coming up the rest of this inauguration day. at 10:40, the president and mrs. obama leave the white house for the capital. the inaugural ceremonies begin at 11:30 and include the ceremonial swearing-in of vice president biden. then at 11:55, president obama will be sworn in by chief justice john roberts. and at noon, the president will deliver his inaugural address. that will be followed by lunch at the capital. then around 2:30, the president leads a procession back to the white house where he and the first lady wil

, something they agreed to rather effortlessly 25 times under george w. bush and ronald reagan. this would be the decision that would be only as disastrous as it is profoundly unnecessary. because the truth is, as president obama noted yesterday the u.s. economy's actually poised for a good year if only congress can get out of the way. i kind of paraphrased that last part. now that we know we're not going to be minting a trillion dollar coin, we need something different. a bill that would repeal the debt ceiling altogether. it is an idea supported publicly by alan greenspan and times man of the year last year, ben bernanke. it is an idea that could prevent lawmakers from lurching our country from one crisis to the next just to ring out some short-term gain until another republican sits in the oval office. that's why it's probably an idea that this congress has no chance of making law. but joining me now is one of the sponsors of the bill to repeal the debt ceiling altogether, democratic congressman from vermont and a member of the committee on house oversight and government reform, represe
presidents choosing that this is now coming home to roost. republicans gave his power to george h. w. bush and george w. bush, democrats gave the power to jimmy carter and bill clinton, barack obama has exercised this power in ways that has frustrated everybody. republicans didn't want to see federal taxpayer dollars going to these companies. it is lawful. is it constitutional? it is not authorized anywhere. tracy: we have to talk about the keystone pipeline. the governor says you know what, he can traverse my state. judge napolitano: this is very frustrating to the state department and the strong environmentalist that support the president because this is basically saying to the president we have the largest single piece to our state who not only have no objection to it, we want it. we are ready, they're here to collect rents to have this stuff built in their backyard, let's go, mr. president. now he has to find another excuse to block it and this is greater pressure on him to decide the orthodox of the environmentalist unless people in texas and canada exchange a pipeline. tracy: judge a

that the republicans have one idea, and that's to cut spending. they don't do that when george w. bush was -- >> i thought their one idea, david, was cutting the deficit. >> that's -- they say that's the case, but it really is they want to just talk about spending cuts as if that is going to help the economy. and any mainstream economist now tells you that you may have to do that in some ways for long-term deficit implications but that's not good in the short run. even simpson/bowles say don't cut so fast. >> and just to be clear, it's not at all clear that they actually have coherent plans for anything they're suggesting. they have sort of hand waving spending cuts, entitlement reform without really writing down a specific path to get there. >> incredible. david corn and jared bernstein, gentlemen, thank you so much. stay with us. we'll be right back. what do we want to build next ? that's the question. every day. when you have the most advanced tools, you want to make something with them. something that helps. helps safeguard our shores. helps someone see through a wall of fire. helps those nowh

and that the united states is not engaged. >> look at george w. bush. in 2000 he said he would have a restrained, humble foreign policy. then 9/11 hit. and now we've been dealing with wars for over a decade. we have already made reference to it while the chinese have been investing in africa. we've been dropping bombs in iraq. we are now in afghanistan. 12 years in. $2 billion a week. our defense budget keeps exploding. so an iranian crisis comes at the absolute worst time for this country. >> that's what i was saying early on. >> on so many points. >> things could change dramatically this year. >> richard and i have talked about this a lot. in search of a metaphor, have i been thinking about the islamic role in africa and the middle east, think of it size a large, very dry forest after years of drought. and a lightning strike anywhere, which is unanticipated, starts a brush fire. and then it goes across. we just saw what happened in algeria. what's going on in syria at the moment. and we are not dealing state-to-state. there's an entirely new set of rules for dealing with that critical part of

is effectively following the policy that george w. bush did beforeha beforehand. going forward, i think israelis -- on the he them will say can they do this? i tend to subscribe to the view that a healthy relationship between them and the u.s. is going to have to be fungal. but i also agree with the view that obama is unlikely to take that action in the near term 37. >> david, last question. speaking of north africa, while we've got you, the latest on the algerian situation seems -- the information still is becoming to us not this any real sort of clarified way. what happens now? do you think president obama will have to address a new approach to africa? >> the u.s. has been building in north africa for at least a decade, in toerchls trying to build up the ministry of mali, particularly the algerian army doesn't heed to a -- yeah, that's for sure. it could be weeks, months, years. thank you so much both for your time. stay with us. straight ahead, we'll have a look at travel casts across the continent. we'll be right back. ♪ [ male announcer ] how do you turn an entrepreneur's dream... ♪ int
